Happy Friday, everyone! I don’t know about you, but it currently feels like March 64th to me. Like March is just going to bend space and time and COVID-19 will just always be “March”. BUT! Enough of that! Today is #FeelGoodFriday, and we’re going to focus on news stories today, because tomorrow is #NationalHugANewspersonDay. And I don’t know about you, but reporters these days are doing their best to keep us informed during one of the most trying periods in our history. So today’s stories will have a news angle of some sort, and while I don’t recommend you ACTUALLY accost a newsperson (#socialdistancing) (also: assault?), please feel free to Tweet, email, write a letter, call…whatever it is you do…to let them know their efforts are appreciated. ESPECIALLY since many are putting themselves in the line of fire (whatever the fire happens to be that day) to make sure we stay informed – and all this while news offices are cutting staff and closing up shop far too regularly. So without further ado – here are your #FeelGoodFriday moments!
For our first story, I’m 100% certain we can all relate to one degree or another. Who among us these days hasn’t accidentally turned on a filter or posted something to the wrong page or – HORRORS! – hit “Reply All” instead of just “Reply”? Well, sometimes, those mistakes take a more amusing turn than others, as this poor weatherman learned.
For this next one, we go to my favorite Silver Fox, Anderson Cooper. And because we could ALL use a laugh (or a few giggles) these days – just try not to laugh once he gets started. It really is contagious.
This next one is an honorable mention, because it’s not done by an actual reporter. However, it’s definitely a tribute to those who do it on the regular. And it’s a *heartwarming* tribute, with some sweet moments, and some funny ones too. If you haven’t seen it, do watch. It’s wonderful – and I hope he does more!
We’re going to finish off, however, with Mr. Andrew Cotter, a sports commentator for the BBC. If you haven’t seen this, you must. And if you *have*? It’s ABSOLUTELY worth another watch.
So there you have it – another #FeelGoodFriday post! I’d love to hear about anything you saw or heard lately that really either gave you the feels or made you laugh. And remember – we’re all in this together, so #StayHome and #StaySafe – and always remember to be kind. We can never know what one person may be dealing with under their curtain of calm.
